An Air Algerie Boeing 737-600 was damaged in a landing accident at Seville, Spain last week when it veered off the runway in bad weather. The incident on 18 March happened at the end of a flight from Oran, Algeria to Seville, with 101 passengers on board. The aircraft (7T-VJO) appears to have come to rest with its right wing and engine in contact with the ground and suffered damage to its trailing edge. Air Algerie says that the cause of the incident is unclear, but the airline notes that weather conditions at the time of landing at the Spanish airport were poor. “Our investigations with the Spanish authorities are ongoing,” says the carrier.
